Over this Easter Weekend, I am excited to be part of hosting the first artist gathering/retreat for the recently formed Australian Walking Artists.

It will be a casual and delicious affair, held on Gadubanud Country in the Otways, regional Victoria in a place called Johanna; a wild mix of southern ocean, farmland and ancient forest.
In the shifting seasons, the weather forecast for the weekend looks to shift from 25 degrees- and maybe a dip in the ocean rockpools- to 15 degrees- and rainy forest wanders. We will be taking some outings: a coastal ramble with traditional owner Richard Collopy and a visit to an old quarry run by ‘These are The Projects we Do Together’ and “a site for experiments in building and architecture, creative practices, education and technology.”

Visitors will also spend time at the property and share their work and walkshops crossing visual arts, textiles, geology, singing, poetry, theatre, mapping and audio, and for those that can’t be with us, I would love to invite you to participate from afar.

Many of my offerings and poems are of the moment, imperfect, but I hope with a charm that invites you in, so in that spirit I offer you this.
You can listen to the audio invitation (and transcript) at the website link.

I would so love to hear your voices and walking adventures between Sunday 31st March and 4th April (the period we are gathering) so if you’d like to record a voice memo of anywhere around 1-2 minutes and send to me at [email protected] I will create something that explores simultaneous place and no place/shared place. Or something like that ; )
